"the fox report's" chief correspondent jonathan hunt on the top story from the bottom of the hour from new york. it's kind of good news and bad news if a death can be good news. >> in a sense bad news because it produces some instability in a country like afghanistan. that is never good particularly in southern afghanistan where walid karzai was particularly powerful but where the taliban might try to fill the power vacuum created by his death. it also though according some analysts because wari karzai was entirely corrupt and he was tied in that corruption to the united states. so, annual listings like michael o'hanlon of the brookings institution believe it's a chance for the u.s. to create a clean slate. listen. >> it does potent

going to the taliban? well, it's a little confusing but it has to do with a $2.16 billion transportation contract that the united states has to promote afghan businesses and within that, in the fine print somewhere could be that your tax dollars will fund the taliban. >> in particular, a whole bunch of money is going to fund trucking operations across afghanistan to get military supplies different places and it sounds like a lot of the money that we are giving these eight various trucking companies somehow winds up and we have tracked the money. it goes from our coffers directly through big shots in the afghanistan government and winds up in the pockets of the insurgents. >> we usually do that in iraq. we did it through private contractors. this time we want to try to build up the local economy by hiring local afghans that have affiliations with the local taliban that pay off the taliban not to attack the american stuff. >> why don't we just pay the taliban directly? >> might as well be. it's our money. it's $2.16 billion has gone into the pockets of the taliban, petraeus put a commissi

of the taliban. the question is how could something like this happen? well, it seems pretty clear that keeping track of subcontractor dollars even in washington is difficult. in afghanistan, however, it's a different story. trucking companies often deal with very davis situations in this country. they'll often subcontract out to smaller companies which will further subcontract to smaller entities in the country. those groups will often pay security firms or local groups for safe passage. what we've learned, however, is that some of those payments have funneled in between travel groups and has made their way into the hands of insurgents. manisha? >> david, i know this is an investigation right now but is there any talk on the ground about what you can do about a problem like this? i imagine it must be very difficult. >> it certainly comes as a great surprise to many people who were not aware of this. authorities that we've spoken to say that they've completely and radically revamped the system, allocating now 40 different companies to sort of lessen the degree to which the united states is reli

of international troops. i hope we can all agree that the taliban has morphed into a hybrid. it is one part terrorist organization and one part global drug trafficking organization. for the past today years, virtually every heroin processing lab raided by the dea, special forces, and afghan police has ties to the taliban. what they find is not only large quantities of opium and heroin, but also improvised explosive devices, bomb making materials, and taliban training manuals. in one raid last year, 2056 pounds of high-grade heroin with a wholesale value of $56 million was seized. experts agree it may take many years to get the drug trade in afghanistan under control. as the military begins to scale back its presence this month, i think we have got to ensure that our civilians continue to support counternarcotics efforts in afghanistan. that is really important. a year ago this month, this caucus released a bipartisan report that contained several policy recommendations. i like to highlight the progress being made and what remains to be done. first, the good news. the caucus recommended incr
